STEVE HAYES: Tired Old Queen at the Movies, another Special Oscar Edition


Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck plot the perfect murder in Billy Wilder's classic film noir DOUBLE IMDEMNITY. With a script by Wilder and veteran noir novelist Raymond Chandler, taken from a hard-boiled story by James M. Cain, DOUBLE INDEMNITY set the benchmark for every noir filmed since. With sterling support form Edward G. Robinson, the plot twists, the dialogue and the sexual heat between Stanwyck and MacMurray heighten the ever mounting and unforgettable suspense. Nominated for six Oscars, including Best Picture, DOUBLE INDEMNITY is murder.
